the clinton administration when we heard a lot from the dlc about third way. and president clinton himself used the phrase, "the third way." and the idea was, in a boom time when we didn't have such high unemployment, you could make this argument that somehow the interests of the very, very rich were the same as the interests of main street. that's an argument that just does not fly with the occupy generation. and i found this wall street journal editorial hilarious in some ways. because there's no way that you can credibly make the case to general xors and millennials they should be more concerned about the national debt than personal debt, particularly student loan debt which was exploded to $1.3 trillion today. people, young people today, know that their concern is not the tax rate that they're going to pay as they get older. their concern is getting a job at all. and getting some relief from what wall street has engineered. this incredibly unfair debt burden. and it's no accident that the board of third way is comprised of wall street bankers and that the policies they are pushing are

of the short attention span. they lived through vices of our obsession, i think the former clinton communications guy who said the white house press corps is like the kids at a soccer game they just chase the ball. so we've chased the ball and now we'll chase another one for a while. that's my question. what does the white house think the issues are that can take the 37%, 38% and bump it up. >> if people get coverage and it's cheaper. they think at the end of the day they will reward the politicians that voted for it. people have to get on the site. they have to be able to get the insurance. they have to see a subsidy that allows home to get insurance that costs them less. they are getting better benefits. those two things don't happen. big promise was not kept. >> really quickly, willie, i figured it out. very excited. figured out where i'll put the picture of willie. >> good. >> in my household. >> where? >> right there. you like that? >> there he go. >> i put on my paisley smoking jacket at night and sit there. >> you got the stylist for the lili pulitzer campaign. >> kind of cr

, president bill clinton spoke with us and remember when bill clinton said president obama should honor his, if you like it you can keep it pledge? clinton says those comments were not intended to distance his wife and her potential white house candidacy from any obama care headaches. here he was. >> i was trying to be supportive of it. i don't think you can find anybody in america who worked harder for his re-election or support of this bill or went out of the way to explain the bill more than i did. there's no politics there. i didn't say anything until he talked. i'm trying to be supportive. i do think we have to get the website up and we have to work. is it confined to the website? that's the biggest problem because if the website is working and everybody can see what their options are, then in most states, most people will have a good option, which will be the same or less costly than the one they had before that will cover the same or more conditions. so, i think it will be all right. but, know there was no politics involved. >> when asked if hillary clinton will run for president bec
